Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, August 9, 1890, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Saturday, Aug 9, 1890 Rain in the morning. Grey and cloudy rest of the day. I went down early and made purchases for the breakfast to which we had invited Fred and Annie. They came and we had the breakfast and they remained until 5 o'clock when they left for home by the train. It has been a quiet grey day with rain before 7. I had a letter from Bowyer regarding the camp beds which I answered. While I was down town I got the petitions from the office for the postal delivery and started several of them. Sam Coykendall headed one of them and I went down to the cement office and Mr. Lindsley signed it and I left one for Edwd. Tomkins and Wm. Abbey took one. I shall look after it and try to get some smart man to go around with one. John McEntee would not sign it fearing it would lead to putting a central office up at the City hall, but I think he will sign it.
